Looking for New Contributors

This is a plea. Please help.

Hi all.  This is a meta-post about Canis Hoopus.  No basketball, or music, content, so do with it what you will.

I've had a good time running this place since I took over as site manager, and I want to continue having a good time doing it, otherwise what's the point?

I have concluded that to continue enjoying my role, I need help.  Tim Faklis has done a terrific job integrating into the community and providing us with good content. Having a reporter covering the games for us is great. He's going to branch out a little, and has already done so by doing the weekly power ranking updates and the occasional game preview. We will be hearing more from him as time goes on.

But other than us, the other contributors are sporadic.  Which is fine; there is no commitment for them beyond what they want to contribute, and I appreciate it.  Key Dae does good work, but it's occasional; he has a life.  Russian Bees European reports are fantastic. mr. eggplant writes good pieces about the league as a whole when he can, and of course vjl110's draft stuff is among the best analytic work on the whole of SBN and beyond.

Here's the thing: I need someone(s) who can help out with the day to day running of the site. Who can commit to being available, if not every day, then specific days to consistently get content up, whether it be link stories, game previews, game threads, etc.  I have tried to do it myself, but I simply can't keep up every day getting multiple pieces up on the site. It's just too much.

So I send out a call. If you are interested, and think you have time, and commit to it for at least a few months to see how it goes, email me.  Let me know what you can do and what you want to do, and we'll take it from there. If you know someone who you think is interested, let them know. Generally I prefer to go with people who are already members and participants of the site, since I think of it as a community, but newcomers are welcome to inquire as well.

Again, I'm looking for one or two people right now who can afford the time to help out on daily basis. If I get inundated with interest, obviously I'll have to pick from among those interested.

If you have any questions, let me know via email or in comments if you want.
